Godwin Glacier Sled Dog Tours

by Poesken

We had a prepaid Godwin Glacier Sled Dog Tour (900$) for the 2nd of August 2010. The Tour was cancelled due to bad weather. The owner assured us he would refund our money. Now (October 15) we still don't have our money back and if you look at Trip Advisor you will see that we are not the only one in that case. Can somebody (living perhaps in Seward) tell us what is going on? Are the owners really thieves, like some people seem to think. They don't answer our emails or calls.

Sorry for your experience. I would contact the Seward Chamber of Commerce (http://www.seward.com/membership/board.htm) and use the contact information to e mail those on the Board. While this is not an official government agency, those in the Chamber of Commerce work very hard to keep tourists happy. They may make an inquiry for you and bring some pressure to bear. It is a relatively small town so most people know one another. Good luck, Karl

We have contacted the Chamber of Commerce a month ago and all they can do (and did) is forward our complaint to the owners. So this was not really helpful!

Travel Tips for Seward

Visitors' Centers in Seward

by AlbuqRay

The current Seward Chamber of Commerce Visitors' Center is located at 2001 Seward Highway out toward the airport. The old visitors' center was a 1916 Pullman railroad car at Third Avenue and Jefferson Street. It is not in use now. The Kenai Fjords National Park Visitor Center (1212 4th Avenue, P.O. Box 1727, Seward, AK 99664; 907-224-7500) is located adjacent to the harbormaster building by the Small Boat Harbor on Fourth Avenue. The Kenai Peninsula Online provides a nice writeup on things to see and do in Seward.

Eagles

by zrim

Wildlife is plentiful. Bears, seals, sea lions, otters and of course the great sperm whale. Anyone who feels a thrill when seeing the great American bird, the eagle, should definitely make their way to Seward. As we trolled out of the marina in the early morning, the eagles were lined up on dock posts much like pelicans in a Floridian harbor.

Seward Sealife Center is a must see,Seward is also the start of The Alaskan Railroad.This is an actual town that you could drive through in 5 minutes,but drive from the ocean or you will be driving in the ocean. SEWARD SEALIFE CENTER

Whales

by zrim

The great humpbacked whales are frequent visitors to the waters off the Kenai Peninsula. The best way to see the whales is to obviously get out on the water in a boat. The tour boats operated through the National Park are probably the best way to combine glaciers and wildlife. The captain of our boat was a grizzled veteran and knew where to find the seals, sea lions, puffins and sighted this whale well before any of the rest of us.

Go on the Kenai Fjords...

by worldtrekker

Go on the Kenai Fjords National Park Tour! There are several options and times of day when tours go out. You may want to consider the afternoon tour which includes dinner. This combination wildlife and glacier cruise takes you through Resurrection Bay, around Aialik Cape and to the very face of an active tidewater glacier. You'll also visit the Chiswell Islands which are part of an Alaskan Maritime National Wildlife Refuge. At the mouth of Resurrection Bay is Hive Island, called the 'Beehive' for the swarms of birds which live here in summer. Over 20,000 horned and tufted puffins make their nests here. For the rest of the year, they live on the open ocean. When these birds are flying to and from this island, it really does look like a beehive! It's an incredible sight. The boat will come fairly close to the island to give you a better look at the birds. Cormorants, black oystercatchers, murres and kittiwakes are also often seen on the tour.
